Get a 3/4 ton or larger. I have a 2001 F-250 with the V-10. Payed 7k for it. I get 10mpg at 65-70 through the Montana mountains. It has 130k miles. If I do my part on the hills it never even leaves O/D. I am happy with the money I saved, power and great towing power I gained by going with a reliable older truck. Doesn't leak or burn any oil, I even swapped it to a synthetic blend with the eventual plans of going full synthetic. It's not a beauty but it does the intended job very well. My typical lake trip is at minimum 100 miles away. So something that pulls well was a requirement for me.
